Flashscore presents the key facts before the game.

6th-placed Villarreal will host 7th-placed Girona in the 26th round of La Liga. Only four points separate the two sides as the battle for a European qualification spot intensifies.

The visitors managed to bounce back with a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo last round, following a 6-1 disappointment at Camp Nou against the Catalans. Yet, they remain a team who struggles away from home without a single away win since December 2017.

Villarreal have just one win in their last five games and will be looking to secure a win against the away-struggling visitors.

Players to watch: Carlos Barrca has failed to score in his last three games… Will he be able to find the back of the net for the Yellow Submarine?

Meanwhile, Girona are quite reliant on their offensive duo in the fase of Christian Stuani and Portu. They have the third best strike rate in the league.
